It was also discovered that the same suspect had stabbed a man in an attempt to snatch his mobile phone at Marian road.
The victim who spotted the suspect alerted people around about his presence.
“He stabbed the guy and his intestines spilled out, he was trying to recuperate after spending the last 2 weeks in the hospital”
An eyewitness said;
“Though the police just arrived at the location to whisk him away, but how are we sure he will face any form of punishment considering how porous our judicial system has deteriorated into?? “
